I was always the new fat kid, it was brutal. Self conscious? You bet! This was my life for over fifty years. Then, my happy, though self conscious obese life changed. A career that had finally reached a point of success that most never see was cut short due to health reasons. Nothing could keep me quiet forever and It was at that time I accepted the challenge to change my eating and exercise habits. After several failed attempts including WW, OA and a physician guided plan, I decided to look into Bariatric Sleeve Surgery. I am so happy that I did so!
